Fiji’s AG says there is acceptance of so called new legal order

Radio New Zealand International - 23 May, 2010

Fiji’s interim Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum , believes the new legal order brought in after the scrapping of the constitution last year is working well.

At that time, the administration also sacked all judges and began creating new law through decrees promulgated by the President.

With a large number of decrees and a major overhaul of the penal code, Mr Saiyed-Khaiyum, says a change in mindset was needed:

“I think generally the test of it is the acceptance and the useage of it. So obviously the society at large needs to accept it and the people who actually implement it are actually using the laws and definitely they are using the laws”

Mr Saiyed-Khaiyum says the administration is still working to fill vacancies both in the High Court and the Magistrates courts.

  • Who is Aiyarse trying to fool? Can he substantiate with proof the claims he is making to the world that their laws is being respected by the people of Fiji. What a liar and a fool. How can the people of Fiji respect their illegal laws when they themselves have thrown out the legal law which the majority of the Fijian people still respect and voted for. 
  • Aiyarse should stop the lies and stop fooling the world and himself included. The proof is in the pudding, no right thinking Judge will work for this idiots as judges. Maybe they will attract the wrong sorts and the corrupt ones from Sri Lanka.
